Walberswick Car Parks Limited was established in 1997 to help manage the large traffic flow and address the lack of appropriate parking in the village particularly during the busy summer months. Over the years, the number of cars entering the village has increased as Walberswick attracts large numbers of visitors throughout the year. There are two car parking areas that are open year- round. Solar-powered pay and display machines were installed in both the car parks in 2017. Attendants work at the Car Parks between April and September in order to help manage the traffic and help drivers to park their vehicles in a way to maximise the available space. Pay and display provides visitors the option of short and longer periods for parking including a £1 for 1 hour option for quick visits. Charging is in place throughout the year.
Walberswick Car Parks Limited is registered at Company’s House and run by a volunteer Board of Directors and a part-time Operations Manager all of whom live in the Village. All profit from the takings is covenanted to the Walberswick Common Lands Charity which helps maintain the Commons and other paths and bridle ways, helps provide flood defence and provides charitable support to many causes and individuals in the local community.
Please go to the Charity's own site to see some of the work it does.
